#1 Bestseller in Contemporary Romance

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 11.42.05

The Wedding Proposal was selected for a UK Kindle Daily Deal promotion on Wednesday – lucky me! The promotion worked so brilliantly that The Wedding Proposal actually topped the Contemporary Romance chart the following day, climbing to #10 in the Kindle Paid Chart. Joy! So far as I know, this is the best Kindle chart position that any of my books has achieved, so I was doing a happy dance all day.

I’d never even noticed before that Amazon awards your book a pretty little ribbon if it’s #1 in a chart but as soon as I was alerted I took the above screen shot to save the moment for posterity. (And to put on Facebook and Twitter and my blog.) The Wedding Proposal is a summer read, being the story of what happens when Lucas (who hates secrets) is stuck sharing a boat in Malta with Elle (who has a lot to hide) for the summer, and quite a few people told me they’d downloaded it ready for their holidays.

To add to the happiness of the day, the Summer Party of the Romantic Novelists’ Association took place at the Royal Over-Seas League in the evening. I’m tired and have a sore throat, so I know I had a good time! Congratulations to all those who were contenders for the Joan Hessayon Award, especially Brigid Coady, who was the talented winner.
